Zion Williamson could be on move before NBA Draft

Things have spiraled out of control between Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans’ organization. At this point, there is said to be no relationship between the two sides. One report has gone as far to say that it’s a near guarantee Williamson will be moved ahead of the NBA Draft.

Williamson, 22, has played in all of 114 games in four NBA seasons. That includes just 29 over the past two seasons. And while he’s elite when on the court (25.8 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 3.6 APG), these injuries are concerning. Williamson also inked a five-year, $194.3 million extension last summer. As of right now, Williamson is being linked mostly to teams picking at the top of the 2023 NBA Draft, including the Charlotte Hornets (No. 2) and Portland Trail Blazers (No. 3).

The 28-year-old LaVine is a surprise inclusion in summertime NBA trade rumors. Chicago inked him to a five-year, $215.2 million contract last summer. The idea was to team LaVine up with DeMar DeRozan and compete or a conference title. Instead, the Bulls fell in the Play-In Tournament.

With Chicago actively engaging other teams in LaVine trade talks, we’re hearing what it might take or another squad to land the All-Star. According to K.C.

Sacramento Kings chasing after Toronto Raptors stars

Fresh off their best season in a quarter-century, the Kings are not sitting idly by. They were linked to Bradley Beal in NBA trade rumors before he was sent to the Phoenix Suns. Now, Sacramento is chasing after Toronto Raptors forwards Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby.

Neither player should be a surprise in that the Kings are looking for frontcourt help to team up with Domantas Sabonis and Keegan Murray. Perhaps, the Kings could offer up a package surrounding guard Davion Mitchell and draft picks to get this done.

This seven-time All-Star went on record recently indicating that he believes he’ll be back with the Portland Trail Blazers for a 12th season. That all depends on what Portland does in the 2023 NBA Draft. It boasts the No. 3 overall pick and has been talking to teams about moving said selection as part of a package for a proven star to team up with Lillard.

More recently, reports indicate that the Blazers are not taking calls on Lillard. Meanwhile, he’s content remaining with the only NBA team he’s called home.

Bleacher Report revealed in June that the Atlanta Hawks could consider trading one-time All-Star Dejounte Murray. The veteran guard was acquired in a blockbuster trade last year, however, the team is concerned about an impending $17 million luxury tax bill if they don’t shed some payroll and he is an interesting trade chip.

Furthermore, Murray could be available because there is a belief he may opt out of his current deal next summer and be out of their price range on the free agent market.

NBA trade rumors involving Tobias Harris

We’ve read reports about the Philadelphia 76ers looking to trade Tobias Harris for well over a year. It might now come to fruition. One report indicates that there’s an expectation Harris will not be in Philadelphia next season.

However, it also might be hard for the 76ers to find a trade partner given his $38.2 million salary for the 2023-24 season. A team like the San Antonio Spurs that could be seeking salary relief for next summer makes sense. In this scenario, the likes of Doug McDermott, Zach Collins and Devonte’ Graham head to Philadelphia. Though, that’s unlikely to be much of a needle mover for Philly.

The odds are that LeBron James will return to the Lakers for a sixth season after leading them to the Western Conference Finals. However, there are a ton of other questions relating to this roster heading into the free agency.

Among them is the future of impending free agent guard D’Angelo Russell. Recent reports indicate that the Lakers could be looking to use Russell in a sign-and-trade as part of a package for a star guard. However, the Dallas Mavericks have no interest in Russell in a deal involving Kyrie Irving.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles has to worry about retaining breakout star Austin Reaves. He’s set to become a restricted free agent and could be priced out of the Lakers’ market. That could, too, lead to sign-and-trade discussions.
